OCT or Ocular Coherence Tomography is a diagnostic, control and follow-up technique that provides professionals with live cross-sectional imaging of the retina.
Why the test is performed:
POSTERIOR SEGMENT OCT
It is of great value in the diagnosis and surgical approach to different retinal pathologies. Thanks to this test, we can examine the posterior retina, macula, papilla and how they relate to the vitreous and choroid; thus making it possible for the ophthalmologist to follow up the pathologies of the retina and vitreous, macula, glaucoma and diseases of the optic nerve.
Modalities: Macular, Nerve fiber layer, GCC and Optic nerve.
ANTERIOR CHAMBER OCT
This study provides imaging of ocular tissue (cornea, iris and iridocorneal angle). It is indicated for following up certain pathologies such as angle-closure and corneal pathologies.
How to prepare for the test:
No preparation is required for this test.
